In time for next month’s Pliny the Younger hunt, Reuben’s Brews has just released its Gobsmacked! Triple IPA in 22-ounce bottles and on draft. As part of the Seattle brewery’s Small Batch Series, this big, bold IIIPA will be available in distribution across the Pacific Northwest.
Gobsmacked! Triple IPA was originally brewed for Brouwer’s Cafe’s 10th Anniversary back in 2015. Fortunatley for hopheads this beer stayed around and is a 10% imperial IPA that’s loaded with Citra, Magnum, and Galaxy hops. Tangerine notes up front, with grapefruit in the finish. The smooth, soft, and juicy body adds balance to the finish.
